Even before public release the album received critical acclaim and was announced as John Suchet’s Album of the Week on Classic FM. Musikk Magasinet’s Magnus Andersson comments:
Henning Kraggerud has “developed an ideal classical sound with substance, warmth and beauty at the very core … It is a delight to hear this CD and Kraggerud’s superior interaction with his instrument … there is a sense of natural ease in his playing. At the same time, there is something imaginative and inventive in even the predictable moments, and much of this is due to his timbre and sound.”
